jesus christ i hate this forum

I didn't really get into Numan's work until some years ago, though I had been aware of Cars and Are "Friends" Electric? since I was a pre-teen; in 2013 Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind) came out and

I’m genuinely sorry, BCM. I think I do as well.

is it just me or the songs in the pleasure principle all sound the same? same key? not dissing just feel like sometimes can't tell the songs apart from each other... maybe it's a conceptual album? i think that if one transposed some melodies all of them would fit together perfectly...

Numan had no idea of keys at the time. Perhaps the songs sound similar to you because of the synth used on each track but he didn’t have much equipment to work with. Regardless it’s an iconic album and still sounds amazing.

a guy who's been playing guitar since 73 doesn't know what a key/scale is in 79? sorry but i don't buy it...

even if it's true, that just proves my point... not knowing what a scale/chord progression is just makes it more likely for one to end up repeating it unintentionally...

I hunt an peck, but i can play. Hoping to get a midi retrofit someday. 

I can learn any instrument if I like it. You might be able to get weird tunings with the ribbon controller. Ill have to experiment

I don’t care if you don’t buy it, I actually bother to do research and know it.

The album was seminal at the time, songs were sampled by the hip-hop community for rap battles, it would be mentioned as a major influence on industrial music in the 90’s. Your post is stupidly dismissive and makes you look ignorant.

A short while ago I sent a message to the mods asking if my account could be deleted. This will probably be deleted too.

WATMM has either banned or driven away anyone who's posts border on the risqué, but allows morons like Tim J to pollute every thread with their stupidity and useless attempts at trolling. Which is more damaging? The forum is a ghost town, the website will never be finished. All the best.

@tec i think you might be mistaking not knowing what a scale is with not knowing how to make a patch in a synth, which is in fact what happened att...

this just goes to show your lack of knowledge regarding music composition/technology so i think it's the best for the both of us to put you on ignore as well... next time get down of your not that tall high horse and avoid embarrassing yourself with spiteful comments abut something you know nothing about...

As luck would have it, the synth’s previous user had adjusted the settings to create a perfect, bottom-end heavy sound that piqued his interest. Without these ideal settings Numan isn’t sure he would’ve done much with the instrument. “I wouldn’t have known how to get that sound; I didn’t know anything about synthesizers,” he said in Mad World. “They were just a bunch of dials to me.”

Interview requests were constant and technology magazines who saw him as some kind of synth wizard wanted his insight — never realizing that Numan himself still didn’t have a great understanding of synthesizers. “They were asking me about envelopes and fills and boffin shit. I just blagged and bullshitted my way through it,” he said in Mad World.

do you have any idea how much of a frustrated immature person comments like these make you look like?  i never resorted to name calling like you usually do... why do you feel the urge to take me out of your ignore list to read something i wrote on a thread about one of your favorite musicians just baffles me... you're obviously looking to start a fire... get a life dude...

Nobody cares if you like them, they should both be banned for cluttering this beautiful site up with their nonsense. No need to encourage that.

funny thing here is that my initial post was by far a useless attempt at trolling as tec likes to put it... i was genuinely wondering about what i posted... it sounds like a concept album, in which the songs share a single central narrative or theme, which in this case sounds like it's instrumental and compositional... hence the songs ending up tying together as a whole... a bit like some of 70's prog rock bands...

I didn't really get into Numan's work until some years ago, though I had been aware of Cars and Are "Friends" Electric? since I was a pre-teen; in 2013 Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind) came out and I was somehow very receptive to it at that time, bought it and listened to it a lot. After a while I started to gather and go through the albums in reverse chronology, so Dead Son Rising, Jagged, Pure, Exile, Sacrifice and various others followed, and later, Savage (Songs From A Broken World). Although I like Numan's sound, there is a very certain lack of stylistic and musical variance in his work, a lot of the tracks really do sound the same within and across albums. Numan's inimitable vocals are also very self-similar, distinct, yes, but his expressive range, well, isn't. Regardless, I enjoy Numan's music, the militant atheism, the cyber-goth post-dystopian machine-metal aesthetics etc. I got to see him live on the Savage tour here in Helsinki in late 2018. He's still cool at 60+.
